    My friend called me with a chicken emergency. Her neighbor's birds had lice and she purchased the wrong poultry dust and gave them all a good treatment with it. She had gotten Prozap It also said Zipcide dust on it and it's 1% Co-rap. On the bottle it read lice control for beef. dairy, swine and horses but does not say anything about Chickens but it does say can be toxic to birds. The guy come over to her house and told her the chickens were laying on the floor. They are now supposedly on the roost (she is going over to check them now) but wants to know what can be done if anything to try to save them??
